Virtual reality (VR) technologies allow user (children) to immerse in computer-generated . In pedagogy the big advantage of VR is the sense of presense in the virtual environment, the “feeling of beeing there”. Virtual environments offer promise for enhancing emotionally relevant experiences and social interactions. Within this context, VR can allow parents, teachers and everyone who is interacting with kids to offer unique experiences that can benefit assessments and learning in both typically developing children and children with disabilities. Immersion is possible in environments that reflect real-world activities but also in environment.
